Sarah Stanley Mosaics
I create original contemporary mosaics. Each work is completely unique; handmade using traditional techniques using materials as diverse as vitreous glass, porcelain, ceramic, mirror, stone and marble.
My mosaic pieces are predominantly abstract and with a very limited colour palette, using shade, tone, hue, texture, cutting and laying to create depth and interest and to emphasize the unique qualities of each material.
I have been making mosaic pieces for 20 years and I am continually inspired by the huge potential of the materials. Their colours, textures and the vagaries of hand-cutting mean that every single piece will be completely different – a marriage of the head, the heart, the hands and the materials.
Based full-time in my riverside studio in Brentford, my pieces are available to buy in several shops and galleries in London, Surrey, Oxford, Salisbury, York and Cumbria. I also work extensively to commission with new works recently created for customers in the UK, Europe, Middle East, Australia and North America. Two or three times a year I teach weekend workshops in Hanwell.
I am a professional member of the British Association for Modern Mosaic (BAMM) and a founder member of Johnsons Island Artists. I am also Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees and a member of the Governing Body for the London School of Mosaic.
